    Being so close, my family is able to visit the Art Institute in Chicago occasionally along with the nearby Field Museum of Natural History. The explanation of the provenance and cultural implications of each piece is interesting to read. Similarities in embroidery from country to country and throughout the ages are of particular interest to me. So I greatly value the descriptions and lush close-up photography in this book.
